As expected Governor Walker has just announced that he is "suspending" his campaign for president. In a brief speech the Governor explained that he is dropping out of the campaign to clear the field for other candidates, and encouraged others to do the same to allow a "positive conservative" message to ovvertake the Democratic alternatives. Perhaps we will now see the Governor in our state more often, and have more of a chance to hold him accountable.
Multiple news sources including the New York Times are reporting that the press conference that Scott Walker has called in Madison at 5 PM today will be for the purposes of announcing that he is withrdrawing from the presidential campaign.
In recent weeks Walker's poll numbers have been imploding, including a poll this week in which he placed under 1% of support for the Iowa primary. Sources say that Walker is quickly running out of money in his campaign as donors have been shifting money to candidates with a more likely chance of winning.
Personally I worry about the fact that a disgruntled and angry governor will return to the state and will "Wreak Havoc" in Wisconsin, rather than in Washington as promised. As if enough damage had not been done already.
